Britain to have no more than 225 nuclear warheads

We already knew that Britain has 160 "operationally available" nuclear warheads but the total figure of warheads to be held by the British including warheads in maintenance has remained a secret until now. The government has announced it will retain a maximum of 225 warheads. The government say they are committed to the nuclear deterrent but are to review the circumstances under which it would be used.
